Flickering light/textures on some surfaces
I have just re-installed the game and am really excited to get back into it. LOVE this game. It seems I have, on some surfaces, flickering textures/lighting - seems to be on textures where there is an overlay of sorts (proper terminology? I have no idea.) such as windows, truck bumpers, some walls. It is a fast flicker and isn't game breaking but I would still love to get it fixed.

I am running, two GTX Titans with SLI forced on through the Nvidia Control Panel (AF2). I have also set maximum pre-rendered frames to 1. This game is a hog, even on two titans. Running it on a single titans puts my temps up to 73-75 degrees. On two Titans, I'm still looking at 63-72 degrees on each. I have sufficient airflow through a custom case - no issues there.

If you have any tips or have experienced these "flickering" textures, I would love to hear about it!

Thanks!

It actually seems to be the shadows... If that helps. o.O

go to control panel and make sure videos settings are set to default values and things like aa set to application controlled (which should be default value)


also run the game to to video settings and try different values for shadows


verify game cache

post details about your hardware (cpu, gpu, memory) and os (windows version n if 32/64 bits)

make sure windows, drivers, c/c++ runtime, .net runtime, directx runtime, etc are all updated

I don't think system is the issue.

Win 8 Pro 64 bit
i7 3770k 3.9ghz
2x GTX Titan SLI
16gb DDR3 1866mhz RAM

but did u make sure to go to control panel and make sure videos settings are set to default values and things like aa set to application controlled (which should be default value)

also if that does not work try disabling sli and use a single gpu

also u still need to try running the game and try different video settings

keep in mind the game does not know much about your hardware, it just goes through win32 apis and directx apis

those talk to your drivers and its your drivers that talk to the hardware the os coordinates / marshals it all...

Thanks for the help all! So I rooted it out. Forcing SLI using Alternate Frame Rendering 2 causes the flickering shadows on my system. Looks like I'm just going to have to run it hot (~79 degrees) on a single Titan...

go get a fan that you can put internally directly over the video card blowing air on it using some ties, that should cool it down

i have cheap case and ive put like 3 internal fans angled to blow air on my gpu, cpu, chipset, memory. it really gets the air flowing

you can connect it to extra fan controller on the motherboard or just connect it to power supply connector using dirt cheap adaptor they sell for them or better get fan that comes with power supply connector adapter

and dont forget to get fan that comes resister that will reduce the speed so its quiet

you should be able to do all that for $10 or less

I... don't... understand why you are reccomending a fan. Heat is not an issue.

i just said a fan cause you posted

"Looks like I'm just going to have to run it hot (~79 degrees) on a single Titan..."

so u could run cooler and not need to run hot ~70degrees the titan...

plus as posted i do it to look my other components. its just optional. mine run little more than ambient temperature. i puts like 13-15 fans in my case.... it runs very nice... plus i use controllers so its very quiet running the 120mm fans. not saying u need that many fans i as just having fun wanted very cool case w lots of airflow so i can oc to the limit... without watercooling and having it quiet since the fans runs slow so not noisy
